|Make Mend For Victory - The Spool Cotton Company|
"It's up to you to keep the home fires burning, to see that you and your family stay easy-on-the-eyes. Fortunately, you can be patriotic and pretty both. It's easy to teach an old wardrobe new tricks, to resurrect the skeletons in your closet and bring them up to date. Come on, take those old knockabouts and turn them into knockouts, keep that glint in Uncle Sam's eye and still do your stint towards Victory!"

|Makeovers From Men's Suits - United States. Department of Agriculture|
"Uniforms of the military service are fast taking the place of civilian suits, This means that much good wool may lie idle - stored away in moth balls - or be wasted. If folks at home cannot use these discarded suits as they are, it is patriotic to rework them into clothes that will be worn."
